They still have not decided on a host?

No, the whole selection process got interrupted by the writerís strike.

Deadline says there will be guest hosts the rest of the year with a new permanent host selected to start in 2024.

Guest host schedule. I guess Dulce Sloan and Ronny Chieng just get shafted out of their hosting opportunities. And Leslie Jones and Sarah Silverman are returning for round 2 for some reason?

Jon Stewart is returning to host Monday episodes through the election, with correspondents hosting Tuesday-Thursday.

Their ratings much have tanked since going the host-less route, which makes sense. People tune into these daily shows for the consistency of the host. If I were one of the higher ranked correspondents, I'd go the route of Roy Wood and jump ship. CC isn't giving the job to any of them if they haven't already.

ďJon Stewart is the voice of our generation, and we are honored to have him return to Comedy Centralís The Daily Show to help us all make sense of the insanity and division roiling the country as we enter the election season,Ē Chris McCarthy, President/CEO of Showtime/MTV Entertainment Studios

The voice of Gen X maybe. Zoomers probably don't know who he is, and Millennials probably don't care about his return as much as we do.

Jon Stewart's takedowns of officials from "The Problem With..." do HUGE numbers on TikTok. I think it's a smart move to bring him back, especially for the younger folks who didn't watch him on The Daily Show but are politically active now.

It bothers me how dismissive people are of Tik Tok because all they see are the "new dance craze" videos, or the Jackass style stunts. I've managed to find a lot of people discussing current events in a fun but still informative way, and I think it's helping to educate a lot of younger people.

If they keep posting to Tik Tok, Jon will easily grow a new fanbase of younger viewers.

They should just back a truck full of money up to Jon Stewart's house and be done with it.

I figured people were done dismissing TikTok by now, it's a hugely influential platform.

I just signed a petition to save the clock tower. Mayor Wilson is sponsoring an initative to replace that clock. Thirty years ago, lightning struck that clock tower, and the clock hasn't run since.

Re: The Daily Show with guests hosts (Comedy Central)

I keep getting Indeed job position emails for TikTok and I'd hop on that if I wasn't unsure of what our politicians are doing.

their pay range from low end to high seems pretty fair (I saw one for another company that listed $100k - $700k and just laughed).

Maybe he is burned out and does not want to return full time or do more than just shows on Mondays
